BEWARE of the hype, BEWARE of high rating
6 January 2014 | by jinojiwantenggaraSee all my reviews

First, I didn't read the book. I believe that a movie should be treated differently from the book.

So, I finally watched this movie based on good review out there and the ads that said there are more than 1 million audiences in just few weeks or sort of . And I was disappointed.

The acting was so wooden. The protagonist voice was so annoying. The woman protagonist's character was confusing. I know they're in love just because the script say so. Even Reza Rahadian can't do his best. The dialogue was really cheesy.

I don't know what was wrong. the director or the script? The fact is that there were 4 writers in this mess.

Also, this movie needs a lot more props more than just bunch of old cars to convince me that this happened in early 1930's. The sets, they look so modern. And by 'modern,' I mean they look like many things that you can find today. Not to mention the misplaced soundtracks by pop band Nidji. Their modern songs with modern instruments just don't fit in this movie.

Later I just find out that 41% of people here gave this nonsensical-so- called-movie 10. To me? 3 is far too generous.
